    November 18, 2019 - It does just what an "off" vintage should do - charm and caress the palate, providing easy, uncomplicated and unpretentious pleasure, whilst waiting for the big vintages to mature. Lithe, elegant flavours of blackcurrant and leather, almost Margalais. The only problem is the price which is only now about what it should have been in the first place. At 35€, this is fine, anymore is a waste of money, because I can't say this is better than Sociando-Mallet for the same price.

    July 19, 2019 - A positive surprise - I never had much joy with 07 vintage but this one showed perfectly mature with game, tobacco, leather, cocoa bean. 3 bottles were emptied at a table with a larger group with ease and it was very much liked by everyone. No decant necessary. Drink now! 91-92

    January 25, 2019 - More acidic than other GPL vintages. Less bold and probably reached its peak. Time to drink them up.

    December 25, 2018 - Correct Bordeaux. Lead, a little blood, cranberry. Smooth finish. Not very exciting though.

    (Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste (Pauillac)) Lightly gamey fruit on the nose here, complicated by a rather generous helping of oak. It suggests a little density and concentration, and there are slightly perfumed red fruit notes coming in behind. The sense of polish it brings to the palate is attractive, but then though the middle it reveals a coarser structure, the wine showing some slightly astringent fruit characteristics along with a fairly forceful seam of acidity. The tannins are somewhat more integrated though. It comes across as rather coarser than I expected, compared to its peers. A firm finish.
